lumia 720 digitizer and screen replacement

Am a technical, live in Nigeria , port harcort city.. A customer who bought a lumia 720 two months ago had it accidentally drop on the floor and cracked the digitalizer. The LCD is still working fine. I went to a service center to discover that the assemble set (LCD + digitalizer) costs half the price of the phone itself . That's way too much !!. Ave tried to seperate the LCD from the screen but it seems not possible without damaging the LCD. The lCD is too fragile and glued to the digitalizer . Using a hot gun around the frame of the digitalizer to melt the glue isn't walking and I can't find any video on YouTube doing that kind of seperation. does it mean not possible?? not advicible?? am kinda confused right now. Nokia should make these parts affordable.. Pls any suggestions?? Dont mind my English ..

OK so I should send to Nokia for repair right ? it's going to cost more than half the phone price to do that in Nigeira .. Do I have to fly it to India? just to get a glass replaced? not wise enough its better to get a new one or go with a cheap Android phone. Nokia make us happy please. ......

Doing this yourself will void warranty obviously. As farby mentioned we can't discuss this here but let's just say Google and Youtube will be your friend..

I am from Chennai, India. I bought lumia 720 two months ago.
Dropped it accidentally and facing the same problem cracked digitalizer
The LCD+digitalizer set is not available in any of Nokia care
At least make this part available
They are asking me to leave my phone with them for 7 days and in that period IF they will get the part they will replace it otherwise I have to wait longer

Sorry about that bro, I figured out the problem is the parts are not avalible. The few once that's got it makes it very expensive. You just have to wait like am doing right now. In 2 to 3 months time it will be avalible and less expensive.

Hi, wolfok. Repair cost depends on the evaluation of the technicians in a Nokia Care Point. We suggest visiting the below link for the list of the Nokia Care Points:

Nokia Lumia 1020 - nothing comes close Nokia Asha 501 - super smart pocket power
